Josh Kushner, the “fiercely independent” younger brother of Jared, who runs the family development firm, and founder of the investment fund Thrive Capital, has been named one of Business Insider’s 30 under 30 most influential young people in tech.
At a mere 28 years old, Josh has already founded two companies, raised $70 million in funding, and poached engineers from Google and a CTO from Tumblr, according to Business Insider.
Last year, Josh led a $4 million venture capital investment in Manhattan-based Honest Buildings, which connects developers and landlords with engineers, architects, designers and other vendors. Of course, this was just after his brother joined the board of the start-up.
Today, Josh’s other company, Oscar, a health insurance company designed around easy billing, has 52 employees. [Business Insider] – Christopher Cameron
